Of late, there is a big argument on the net. With the limited Esperanto that I can control, i read it with sigh.
The issue of whether to advertise or not to advertise, as i have said in earlier post. I heard that the UEA is just controlled by someone and the current President is just the puppet of those who are thirst for power.
Now, look, the culture of the globe is different from one corner to the others. What it can be done in the West may not be able to function well in the East.
Time and again, I invited the Esperantists to consider to help the ASEAN to established Esperanto center but to no avail.
The SDR is "basically the Esperanto, at best, of international currencies," says Jeffrey Frankel, an economist at Harvard University, referring to the ill-fated attempt to create a common language. "It's not at all used."
My friends ask me a question which I could not answer. Perhaps, those involve in promoting the usage Esperanto language would have more information.
The question goes like this:
“Does your Esperantists organise volunteering work ? If so, many people should have known about it. Look at many world volunteering organisations. Just place the flag there, people would start to wonder what it is and the corporating with the local Esperanto Association, the local media would also report it and thus, the promotion of the language is widely reach.”
I did not know about the work of Esperantists. I am a newbee in the world of the Green Star.
Sometimes back, I looked at the Nobel Prize with great admiration. Unfortunately, time tells me, I was too naïve in the political world.
How the committee of this world renowned choose the candidates, it is very tricky. If you look at the list of the peace prize winners, you would realise that not all of them are in the way to achieve world peace or help to eliminate the sufferings of the poor.
Malaysia has chase away the colonial adminstration but still cannot chase away the colonial language.
This is my 2012 wishes that sooner the better, the colonial language in the past of Malaya,ENGLISH will be replaced by Esperanto, the E and E will make a big different as one would use up 1/4 of a life time to learn and the other, Esperanto just need 200 hours, not even 1/10 of the life time.
